Few months ago, while I was talking to some geeks at my Linux User Group, I was surprised to see that they didn’t knew about this trick, the rectangular selection with the console URXVT.
Maybe not important, but it could be useful, especially with IRC client, such as weechat. Select few lines without the nicklist or timestamps is nice when you want do some copy/paste, even if you can switch on and off the nicklist easily.
All you have to do for the selection is press
Alt and select in the same
time with the left click of the mouse.
A quick blog post, for a quick trick that can comes handy
